  • We found our "Cheeseburger in Paradise"

    "We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Carolina. The house was a perfect fit for our family of eight with three little ones. It was immaculately maintained and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Elisabeth, the house keeper, was wonderful! She made the best scrambled eggs I have ever had and is a professional origamist. She made the most creative paper designs on the end of every toilet paper roll in the house every day. Saul and Willie did a great job of coordinating our adventures and giving us great tips on beaches and restaurants. This was better than a 5 star luxury hotel or resort, as you had all the services and amenities of a resort but you had the privacy of having it all to yourself. We always felt very safe with 24 hour security and the gated driveway. The best part for me was the BBQ area, I was able to make the best cheeseburgers on the outside grill in the outside kitchen and we enjoyed them as we watched the sun sink into the Pacific from the infinity pool. It became known as "Cheeseburger in Paradise" time. Casa Carolina should be on everyone's bucket list."

  • Perfection!!!

    "My wife and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary trip at Casa Sandra for eight glorious days, and we couldn't have asked for a better "home" or a better location! From the day we arrived until the day we left, we loved every inch of this property. Since 4-6 could stay here very comfortably, the 2 of us had more than enough space. And a balcony on each floor---facing" the "Jungle" or the Pacific Ocean---is it even necessary to choose an adjective on how great that is?!! Casa Sandra is located in the heart of Manuel Antonio, a couple miles from the town of Quepos, and a couple miles from the famous and popular Manuel Antonio Park. It's within walking distance of grocery stores and many nice restaurants (go to Victoria's and ask for Oscar, trust me). The home is very clean--and there is maid service and laundry service. We always felt safe, including walking at night. And speaking of safe, there's one in the home so one can lock their passports and valuables. We saw monkeys almost daily, and many interesting birds. And the sunsets alone are worth renting this home---better than we saw anywhere else all week. The folks we communicated with before and during our stay here were wonderful--patient, kind, helpful, and easy to get ahold of. We sent many emails beforehand, and a couple calls to ask about things during our stay--and always received a quick response. We wanted to be busy almost every morning, so we told Thomas and Angie what we were interested in, and they set up everything---inhouse massage (excellent), Manuel Antonio Park tour (take a guide---very well worth it, very necessary, and Henry is great!), a Sunset Sail (5 hours of FUN), a Mangrove Tour (educational--and more monkeys!), a Villa Vanilla Spice Tour (again, educational and very interesting), ZipLine (first time for us, and it was incredible!). That including us getting picked up and dropped off at our door for all of these as well! We originally thought we would rent a car all week, but decided to get the van ride from the airport in San Jose to Casa Sandra instead. It was a good decision. Easy to walk almost everywhere, and easy to jump on and off a bus just down the road, which we did often. We did rent a car for 2 days (yes, again, all we had to do was ask the team of Thomas/Angie to take care of this---and they did, dropped off and picked up at our front door!!). We can't say enough about how pleased we were with our accomodations, and the A+/excellent service we received."

  • "Boris" the Iguana at Villa Titi!

    "Yes, we had to name or "guard dog" at Villa Titi! This place was fantastic, we really had a great time. Iguanas about, monkeys in the trees and numerous other creatures complete the beautiful grounds. All the basic amenities you would need are at Villa Titi. The adjacent hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, but we were fortunate enough to be spoiled by Rosa to book our excursions. Nearby there are many restaurants to choose from, our favorite being El Avion, just across the street. The perfect place for a meal, or just a drink to sit out a thundershower. Also, we would recommend Gaia Hotel and Restaurant for a cocktail, dinner and a panoramic sunset view. We had a rental car half of the time, but the rest we relied on the ease of the buses and taxis. Lack of sidewalks can be a bit of a challenge, especially in the evening, but use your phone flashlight of bring one. Our tours were all brilliant! Rafting, zip-lining and catamaran. What a wonderful vacation, we have many fond memories and hope to return someday. Cheers, Randall and Rob - Seattle, WA, USA"

  • Lovely, convenient and nice neighborhood

    "The Terrazza Apartment was wonderful. I enjoyed it very much. It is conveniently located so that the bus along the main road stops on the corner. You can easily get food and supplies, go to restaurants and of course, visit Manuel Antonio National Park, which is not to be missed. There is lots of light in the apartment, it has a lovely garden path to explore. The monkeys visited and were swinging from trees and running on the terrace, it was quite a show. Carol was very helpful when I contacted her and her concierge, Krissia, was also extremely helpful. She brought me flowers, fruit and cookies when I first arrived, what a welcome! The rooms were comfortable, the kitchen has great appliances and supplies. I really hope to return soon."
